Following eight years of acclaimed collections, NYC-based fashion label Suno is closing its doors. Founders Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty launched the brand known for its eclectic prints and bold patterns in 2008, and the Resort 2017 collection will be its last.
"After eight extraordinary years, we have decided to close this chapter and let this resort collection be our last delivery," Osterweis tells Business of Fashion. "We have been humbled by the incredible support that we have had from the moment we launched. It's been a wild and wonderful journey, and we would like to extend our deepest thanks to everyone who has been there along the way."
The brand achieved a respectable level of success in the fashion industry during its short run: It was a finalist for the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA)/Vogue Fashion Fund in 2011 and 2012, won the CFDA Swarovski Award for Womenswear in 2013, and was a finalist for 2014's LVMH prize. Women like Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, and Taylor Swift are just a few of Suno's fans, and the label's commitment to responsible, small-batch manufacturing was praised throughout the industry. No word yet on what Osterweis and Beatty plan to do next, but we'll sure be watching to see where their talents take them.
